National Award-winning Tamil actor 'Chiyaan' Vikram's Thangalaan directed by acclaimed filmmaker Pa. Ranjith is gearing up for a massive worldwide theatrical release on January 26, 2024, and preparations are already underway to make it a grand visual feast. The period action drama set amidst the Kolar Gold Fields (KGF) backdrop during the pre-Independence era also stars Master (2021) heroine Malavika Mohanan playing a key role, with her character in the film's teaser and promo shown to be quite mysterious. With the post-production works ongoing on Thangalaan, Malavika, on Wednesday, November 29, revealed that she finds dubbing to be the scariest part of the filmmaking process.
Sharing an elevator selfie, Malavika wrote on X, "Now for the most scary part of the filmmaking process for me..dubbing 🙈 (Can someone please come and hold my hand while I do it please? 🥺) #thangalaan" (sic). The Petta (2019) star, who is playing the character Aarathi in the Pa. Ranjith directorial, is the latest to take part in the upcoming film's post-production works after Mariyan (2013) fame Parvathy Thiruvothu recently completed dubbing for her portions. Malavika's role has evoked quite a lot of interest among fans after the Thangalaan teaser showcased her to be a powerful character alongside Vikram, with the actress expected to appear in several crucial sequences.
Releasing in Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, Kannada, and Hindi languages, Thangalaan featuring music by National Award-winning composer G. V. Prakash Kumar will see 'Chiyaan' Vikram, Parvathy, and Malavika Mohanan sharing screen space with Pasupathy, Harikrishnan Anbudurai, Vettai Muthukumar, Arjun Anbudan, and English actor Daniel Caltagirone, who will be seen as the antagonist. The expectations for the highly-anticipated film skyrocketed after the teaser was released last month giving audiences a glimpse at the massive action in store for audiences in theatres next year. Furthermore, the text in the Thangalaan teaser, "As myth leads to history, greed leads to destruction, as blood wars lead to liberty, rises the son of gold", hinted at Vikram's character, while also shedding light on what the film is going to be.
